TYPSA has successfully completed the accreditation as an inspection body for safety in railway applications in the control, command and signaling subsystem, in accordance with the criteria established in ISO/IEC 17020:2012

This accreditation allows TYPSA to assess and evaluate the risk of railway application projects based on common safety methods (CSM) and to evaluate railway application projects as an independent safety assessment body (ISA) based on CENELEC regulations.

ISA evaluators carry out an independent assessment of the suitability of both the application of the risk management process and its results, in accordance with CENELEC regulations (EN50126, EN50128 and EN50129). Obtaining this accreditation, in the face of the demanding requirements of ENAC, demonstrates that TYPSA technicians have a solid knowledge in the referenced regulations and are contributing to the improvement of railway safety in line with target 9.1 of SDG 9 for the development of safe, sustainable, resilient and quality infrastructure. This effort has resulted in the creation of a new railway safety department specialised in the practical application of this accreditation and with a clear growth potential in Spain and internationally.
